Versa Networks Launches Unified SASE Gateway that Scales Beyond 100 Gbps

Versa Networks, provider of AI/ML-powered Unified Secure Access Service Edge (SASE), recently announced availability of a new line of Unified SASE gateways delivering 100+ Gbps throughput to meet the growing need for compute scale, driven by the industry’s increased convergence of networking and security. Versa’s new gateways combine high-performance hardware with the Versa Operating System (VOS™), Versa’s converged SASE software stack built on a single-pass architecture. The increased performance delivered by these new gateways enables organizations for the first time to consolidate many networking and security functions into a single gateway.

The SASE market is growing rapidly as enterprises look to support new digital requirements including accelerated cloud adoption, edge computing, increased use of collaboration tools, and a hybrid workforce. According to Dell’Oro Group’s latest SASE and SD-WAN 5-year forecast report, enterprises are anticipated to spend nearly $34B between 2022 and 2027 on single-vendor SASE solutions.

While SASE promises to deliver a unified approach to connectivity and security, these functions have historically been delivered by a fragmented set of point products running on multiple purpose-built appliances. The convergence of these multiple security and network functions into a single application running on a single gateway has been challenging from a throughput and performance perspective, forcing enterprises to make trade-offs between security and network performance/user experience.

To meet this critical need, Versa has certified two new high-performance appliances that provide 100+ Gbps throughput – the Versa CSG5000 and the Dell PowerEdge R7515. When deployed with VOS, these appliances deliver unprecedented performance, including up to 120 Gbps of firewall throughput, 100 Gbps of SD-WAN throughput, and 40 Gbps of Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) throughput.

“Our research indicates a critical need to consolidate security and network functions to enable digital transformation at the network edge, however, without enough compute this could have a negative impact on user experience,” said Bob Laliberte, Principal Analyst at industry analyst firm Tech Target’s Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG). “The performance enhancements to Versa’s Unified SASE solution eliminate performance/security trade-offs for organizations and enable a Zero Trust security model to be applied at the edge, ensuring a strong and secure user experience.”
